After re-boot a message shows Prepairing Auto Repair Diagnosing PC
PC Did Not Start correctly either with 2 options - Restart and trying any of the Advanced Options
Restart option did nothing but restart this cycle of BSOD, etc. Advanced options to troubleshoot (Refresh, Reset, System Repair, Command Prompt are not available due to the following message:" You need to sign in as an administrator to continue, but there aren't any administrator accounts on this PC"
No system recovery disks or Windows 8 Installation media available.
I have had a long history of BSOD issues on this system, and have exhausted my patience in trying to fix it. I have done my own research to no avail, and have even utilized my warranty to get parts replaced. At this point in time I have a replaced motherboard and video card but the BSOD issues have actually increased in frequency.
For testing I have re-loaded Windows. Ran tests on the memory. Replaced the hard drive with an SSD. Updated drivers as best as I could based on the version of Windows and availability of drivers, and as mentioned I have even had the Motherboard and Video card replaced. The only hardware left to rule out is Power Supply and CPU.
I have installed windows 8.1 Update 1 after lots of issues and now this update has become a nightmare now .I have been getting BSOD from them when I play some game (Steam Dota ) most of times was getting this BSOD
My PC config is : 1. Intel Pentium Pentium CPU G630 @ 2.70GHz Socket 1155 LGA (0x1) 2. 4GB DDR3 RAM 3. 2TB Seagate HDD
I am facing a strange issues of BSOD since last 10 days. 1st I was on Windows 7 SP1 since more than 3 months and earlier on Windows 8. Suddenly my Windows 7 got corrupted after automatic indexing process by windows, in which process showed some index files corrupted and deleted. After then windows cant start, stuck into bootloop.
I formatted Windows several times but after a few hours the same condition. Then I decided to backup my HDD and Zero Level format of HDD. I did that, which took almost 6 Hrs. After then I decided to go again on Widows 8. hence, formatted and installed Windows 8.1 Update 1.
Now, again after a few minutes or hours BSOD happen again and again with random Two errors :
1. irql_not_less_or_equal (storports.sys) or 2. kernel-data-inpage-error
I am attaching herewith my CPU details alongwith logs by "dm log collector".
Over the last several days I have been attempting to update windows to 8.1. It starts, tells me that it is installing. At this point I have been unable to stay through the length of the install to see the point that the crash actually happens.
I was working on my laptop on Tuesday and all of a sudden it blue screened with the following error:
system thread exception not handled athwbx.sys
I have tried to uninstall the graphics card as a lot of searches mentioned that this was a problem. I can boot the laptop to safe but cant do much else than that. I have also tried system restore but that fails as well.
Upgraded to 8 a couple months ago. For the last several weeks have been getting BSODs fairly consistently, usually within the first 5 mins of the first time booting for the day. Subsequent reboots usually won't have an issue.
The errors are always something different. Have seen Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area, system_service_exception, some kind of memory management error.
I've tried testing memory with both memtest86, and windows memory diagnostic, both came up clean.
Been looking at memory dumps, but they all point to different programs causing the issue: Steam showed up twice, Skype, I think there was a dwm.exe
Results of my latest memory dump:
Code: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (50)Invalid system memory was referenced. This cannot be protected by try-except,it must be protected by a Probe. Typically the address is just plain bad or itis pointing at freed memory.Arguments:Arg1: fffffb0000000408, memory
I am the same person who posted a thread about needing drivers for Windows 7 after dual booting it with my preinstalled copy of Windows 8. So, I was on Windows 7 today, and my screen randomly blinked on and off for 5 seconds, and then came up with a message saying my system display driver crashed but had recovered. Then, about a minute later, it crashed again and came up with a BSOD saying that the display driver had crashed but failed to recover. I do not have the error code from it, as I only saw this screen once, and forgot to copy down the codde because I got freaked out But anyways, I have copied the system report to this post from the Seven Forums System Tool. I am currently running in safe mode on my Windows 7.
I recently put together this computer from parts piece by piece. Unfortunately all these problems started on a particularly large upgrade including new motherboard, processor, heatsink, ram and gpu. So I'm not sure exactly what is causing this problem. Sometimes when I start up I get a BSOD, often a random cause, I've never seen any consistency. And that can cause up to 3-4 BSOD's in a row on boot up until eventually a system repair is attempted, which has to perform a system restore. After the system restore I get another one or two crashes before I am able to keep my computer on. Then a couple of days later, I might suffer the same bizarre chain again.
I've recently come into a problem booting up my laptop. Just downloaded the new nvidia drivers and rebooted my laptop. Now im getting the bsod and I can just make out that it says driver irql not less or equal before it reboots and goes through the whole process again. I've tried using an installation disc to try the automatic repair or whatever its called but after about 10 tries it keeps telling me windows couldn't fix the problem. Is there any chance of recovering what I had? I've tried a system restore but it keeps telling me I need to select my operating system (?).
My computer has the BSOD that says inaccessible boot drive and i think its because of the sata mode selection. But there is only one selection AHCI when I think I need ata. I don't know if I do need it be there hard drives serial ports say ata.
Today when I played my favorite game ( entropia universe), I got a message from my game saying that I have low ram, I checked on the Ctrl alt del thing and I was shocked that only 3.8 gb ram was usable when i have 8 gb ram and using 64 bit system. So here comes to my first question... Why would this happen?
So I happened to follow a tutorial and turned on the maximum ram checkbox in the advanced settings in boot tab in msconfig. However when I first reboot I got the session 3 initialisation failed BSOD. The second time and third time and so on and so forth I got bad system config info, which turned my computer into a reboot loop. Second question, why would this happen?
My experience similar to this unlucky fellow : Win 8 BSOD : BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO (Details available)SOS
so I followed the guide in the thread and tried to recreate my BCD. I successfully got into the advanced setup options ( I think it is called this ?) by pressing shift +f8.
However I still failed as I was locked there. Every option including opening the command prompt is blocked because it said that operating these options needed administrative rights which I have in my hands. However the ASO said that it can't find any administrative accounts in my computer. Third question , why would this happen?
So now my computer fell into another loop. Whenever I started my computer it went into the ASO and wouldn't get away from it. And can't even see the lovely face in BSOD.
I am am using windows 8.1 in amd fx 8150 and 8 gb ram, computer was somehow normal with occasional freezing ( 1-2 times a month ).
I have tried with a new harddisk, took out my graphics card, checked my memory, they all seemed fine. My computer always run into a quick BSOD during the first boot and I am unable to see the error message and it restarts back to BIOS followed by a successful boot into windows on the second try. Occasionally, on the second try, it would go into windows repair and say that windows did not start up correctly etc. Normally, once it gets into windows, it would be ok. I did have once that I got a BSOD in windows.
Another interesting point to note is I can circumvent the cold boot crash issue by going to BIOS immediately on boot and exit it. This way, it would normally boot into windows without issues.
I suspect this is due to the on board network card but I cannot be sure. This computer is only 1 week old and I have spent a lot of time troubleshooting it. I have tried uninstalling, cleaning and re-installing the latest network drive.
Note that the cold boot crash issue does not always generate a mini dump file.
I just found out that some of space in one of my partition is occupied by NO file after I updated my Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 via MS Store. There is no file hidden in the partition but the computer shows me that 3GB of a partition in my second hard drive are being used.
What I did on my computer before I updated Windows 8 were:
1. Recovered my PC to the factory state 2. Formatted all partitions in both hard drives (the primary one has 3 partitions, not including those Windows hidden partitions, and the second one has 4 partitions). 3. Updated my Windows 8 4. Went through the setup screens
Then I found that 3GB of a partition in the second drive is being used, but there is no file or hidden file there. Do you know what behind this usage???
I am looking forward to 10/18 and getting the Win 8.1 update from the Store to update my Win 8 machine. I wonder if doing the update will modify the partition that is labeled Window Recovery on my HD. I suspect not.
I just purchased a brand new laptop (Lenovo s400) with Windows 8 (which was promptly updated to 8.1) and since I don't like having OS and personal files on the same disk, I used Partition Master for creating a new Partition to keep my files.
After PM rebooted the system, Windows doesn't boot and shows an error coded 0xc0000225. Lenovo adds a button to access System Recovery, but again I get the same error. As far as I can remember, I've never seen a recovery partition and no disks were included (Should've created a recovery USB drive as soon as I took it out of the box).
I would like to emphasize that this hard drive wasn't formatted, just re sized.
which partition holds Windows 8 on my Dual Boot 7/8 system. I want to delete Windows 8 64 bit and reinstall Windows 8 32 bit, then update to Windows 8.1. I'm doing this because the system's old enough that 64 bit 8.1 won't install but maybe 32 bit will. I won't know unless I try.
I need to figure out which partition Windows 8 is on so I can format the drive and reinstall.
I have made my Windows 8.1 DVD, but I haven't committed to installing it yet.
I'd like to just install it on a separate partition on my second hard drive.
Normally I wouldn't hesitate to just go ahead and install it, but I'm not sure if the new Uefi bios will just except it and automatically set up the dual boot menus etc, the way that it did in the past.
Are there extra steps that I need to take before going ahead with the install.
I definitely don't want to replace my current Windows 8 install until the final version comes online at that time I will probably do a complete new install of all my software.
I recently tried to install Ubuntu 12.10, and lost access to Windows 7 and 8.1, after a LOT of looking for bootable disks and stuff, I did fix it.
After recovering the operating systems (I had to delete Ubuntu partitions and then fix the Windows 7 bootloader, because there was 6 primary partitions), the Windows 8.1 partition says its 10.0GB and empty, but when I double click on it, you can see the files inside.
This is bad, because when I try to boot in Windows 8, it gets to the login screen after a long boot time, then it just shows the time, battery, and internet status, and the rest is a blue screen, implying its broken. I found out this is because some OS files are missing, which might be related to the above paragraph. I have lots of paid software in Windows 8, and it was LOTS of downloading, so I dont want to wipe the drive, or have to touch the data, only be able to boot into Windows 8 again.
When I open in a partition viewer, it shows the 70GB partition as it should, and also
